Multiple student scholarships are available at website

To the Editor

Do you need a scholarship? If so, the OCCC Foundation is pleased to announce that there are more than 30 scholarships currently available — ranging from $150 to $1,500 — to help pay for your education.

There are two scholarship applications that are due on Friday, Feb. 14 — theAlejandro Rendon Sanchez Memorial Scholarship (applicants must be Latino to apply) and the Safari McDoulett Endowed Memorial Scholarship (applicants must have graduated from U.S. Grant High School, Capitol Hill High School, or Northwest Classen to apply.)

Both scholarships are listed online with each having different criteria to qualify.

All other scholarships have a Feb. 28 deadline.

I encourage every student to fill out the online scholarship application and let the system automatically match you with the scholarships you are qualified for or you can apply for each scholarship individually.
